The Process of Healing
Talk it Out Together
To heal one must first begin to process their emotions and experiences. Often times in the black community their is a band-aid places on oozing wounds. There is a lot to say and its time we give and hold space to help process, form language and express the heaviness felt across the world. If you are part of the black community and need to space to release for a few minutes or just feel validated in your current experiences join us.

Intergenerational Trauma in the Black Community
July 2nd @ 7pm with Charnell & Ayhanna
Oftentimes when we hear the word Trauma we can be quick to dismiss it and deny it in our lives as black people because for so long we have always been taught to be strong. The only problem is dismissing it doesn’t allow us to heal because it doesn’t simply start with us it runs deep through our blood line. It’s time to learn how to unpack our wounds and deal with them at its core. This workshop focuses on the legacy of trauma and how trauma has been passed down through years of generations and what it's taught us.
